The Death of the MediaI love the smell of schadenfreude in the morning.
Anyway watching the media trying to find a Both Sides angle on the Confederate Flag debate is both amusing and appalling, but Sean Hannity’s desperate leap to the sinking ship is a world class, Olympic record-setting derpitude:
“I have a question: can you still buy a Jay-Z CD at Walmart? Does the music department at Sears have any Ludacris albums? Can I download 50 Cent on Amazon? Can I do that? Can I get some Snoop Dogg albums on eBay?” he asked on his radio show after discussing stores that will no longer sell Confederate flags.
“Why do I say that?” Hannity continued. “Because a lot of the music by those artists are chock-full of the ‘N word,’ and the ‘B-word,’ and the ‘H-word,’ and racist, misogynist, sexist, anti-woman slurs none of those retail executives would be caught dead using.”
“So, if it’s okay for Obama’s teenage daughters and people to go into these stores and buy music chock-full of the N-word, the B-word, well maybe we should consider banning that too. We’re in the process of banning everything. Just a thought,” he said.
And the South Carolina Judge gives Hannity a perfect 10 for pulling off the triple salchow of double-speak. Nice way to smear the underage Obama kids, too. Hannity is a class act.
